Playstation 4/Vita Ports Approved!
PS4/Vita Ports Approved
Good news, everyone! We just got Sony's approval to bring the game to their platforms! With a bit more funding, Liege will be coming to Playstation 4 and Vita!!!
The games I played on Playstation consoles, including classics like FF Tactics, FFVII, Suikoden, and many more, had a huge influence on the vision for Liege, so the thought of getting onto their platform is pretty unreal.
Sony's been incredibly supportive during the on-boarding process, and in particular I wanted to give a quick shout to Shahid Ahmad for making this happen. He's become their main point of contact for indie devs, and he went out of his way to push this through with our limited campaign window in mind. The guy pretty much works 24/7. Seriously, follow him on Twitter. He doesn't sleep. If you're looking to play the game on a Sony device, show him some Twitter love :)
Updated Stretch Goals
So to make the ports to PS4/Vita happen, I've made some changes to our stretch goals:
I've been crunching the numbers and doing lots of research over the last few weeks in anticipation of this update. $52k is a pretty tight squeeze to pull off a console port since there will be significant costs involved with licenses, dev kits, etc. Luckily, the changes we had already planned for our Linux port have a lot of overlap with what's needed to bring the game to PS4/Vita (mainly, a Unity port). With this in mind, I've set the target as low as I can, since I'm really hoping we can make this happen!
Reward Updates & Clarifications
Understandably, Kickstarter doesn't let you modify reward descriptions for tiers that already have backers. That being the case, I'd like to add a few clarifications here. These will also be added to the main project page and in the FAQ:
- For now, I'm including PS4/Vita support in the existing $10 and $25 tiers. That means if you're an existing backer and we hit our $52k target, you'll have the option to receive the game for either PS4 or Vita. Because there's a cost associated for each game key, at this point, I won't be able to offer both in the same reward. I'll be setting up add-ons if anyone is interested in receiving codes for both.
- Alpha and beta access will only apply to the original target platforms (PC, Mac, iOS, Android) as well as Linux. This is because at this stage I'm not clear on how sharing test keys will work on Sony's platforms. If it turns out test keys can be easily shared, I'll offer them to backers at no charge.
That's all for now. Things began moving pretty quickly today so we're still getting everything finalized, but if anything needs to change, I'll be sure to update everyone well before the campaign closes. I've also been thinking about doing a Q&A at some point on Google Hangout or something similar to get to know you all a bit better and to answer any questions you might have. Stay tuned for more on this soon!
And of course, thanks again for all your support!!!
